sport doping

Another major doping crackdown is underway by the International Olympic Committee. Thirty one athletes from 12 countries and six sports could be banned from this year's Rio de Janeiro Olympics.After the committee retested 454 selected doping samples from the Olympic Games Beijing 2008. 250 more results from retesting of samples from the games in London 2012 will happen shortly.

Dick Pound helped found the World Anti-Doping Agency. He served as vice-president of the International Olympic Committee from 1987 to 1991 and again from 1996 to 2000. And he's one of the people who helped highlight the issues of doping and corruption in Russian athletics.

1:25 Protecting your data in the cloud 

Every month their are seven potentially serious cyber attacks targetting New Zealand organisations. They are stopped by the GCSB's cyber security programme Cortex. 

Now, in a 12.2 million dollar project, work is being done to try and get organisations and individuals to control their own data security and hopefully, make us a world leader in a user friendly way of protecting all that information that ends up in the cloud.

The project is called Stratus, and is funded by the Ministry of Business, Innovation, and Employment (MBIE) and is being worked on by a team of leading Cloud security researchers and experts from University of Waikato, University of Auckland, Unitec Institute of Technology and Cloud Security Alliance (CSA). 

The head of Waikato Univesity's cyber security lab head Dr Ryan Ko explains what is involved.
